The Original Westminster Reel

The Westminster was designed in 2001 after the highly successful Classic Reel. I wanted a reel that would be a 19th Century classic, easy to maintain, and certainly lighter weight for shorter rods. Like the Classic, the Westminster Reels have internal self lubrication, single screw take down, and firm adjustable drag tension.

The Westminster Reel is light weight, elegant, and can be made lightest weight for graphite or regular weight to balance fine cane.

This reel in particular really appeals to everyone because it is full function, balances newer rods well, and is simple and easy to use.                   VIEWS

Reel Models Notes:

The Two and Three Quarter inch Reels: This group of reels vary in width and are best for the small or medium size rods for stream fishing for trout.

The Three inch GW 305 is the typical five weight reel for river fishing for trout. The 306 reel is for medium and long cane rods or that special graphite or classic glass rod. The extra diameter is great for faster line retrieve for trout and bass.
